[Host: Seunghun Lee]
We will discuss the properties of classical and quantum Heisenberg
models on the lattices with corner sharing triangles; namely
two dimensional Kagome and three-dimensional Hyper-Kagome lattices.
The roles of thermal and quantum fluctuations, and the resulting
ground states will be the focus of the discussion.
Connection to recent experiments on Volborthite,
Na4Ir3O8, and Zn-paratacamite will also be discussed.
